Beater - T-Shirt of the Month
I'm not quite sure how the first of the month escaped me. But here we are, 17 days into a 31 day month, the first of the month a lost memory. Perhaps then, it's with a pinch of irony that the May T-Shirt of the Month from Backcountry.com is entitled "Beater".
On top of that, while stepping out of my office to take a picture of me wearing the Beater T-shirt I locked myself out. Truly a Beater move.
Rather than the typical 100% organic cotton, this month's shirt is a blended fabric that feels like cotton yet performs like a synthetic. The fabric is built by Sport Science whose shirts have come a long way in the past few years.
When I first put on the shirt it felt soft enough to almost pass for a merino blend. The sizing is a bit off from a traditional cotton tee.
These shirts are a bit larger than the size indicates. I typically wear an XL cotton tee, especially in the 100% organic style that Backcountry.com has been using. In this shirt a Large fits good, while the XL would have been quite baggy.
I'm stoked to be sporting a shirt that is both smart and functional. Now, if only I weren't such a Beater...
